26 Weeks

7 Oct

So I will be doing one of these little guys because they are just so much easier than trying to think of everything that has happened since the last time I blogged! It’s exhausting, and right after I post the latest one I remember things that I forgot to add. This may make it all easier to remember 🙂

How far along? 26 weeks, and 1 day

Total weight gain: Let’s not discuss this right now, because its so depressing. I’ve already gained over 23 pounds. Horrific, I know. How? I’m not sure. My weight has just skyrocketed throughout this pregnancy.

Maternity clothes? Uhh yes. And since a very long time ago. I can BARELY get away with completely unbuttoned pants now, but they are extremely uncomfortable, so I know that I will have to be only wearing maternity pants only soon. And my tops? Thank you for being so unbelievably tight around my belly, I am also almost out of luck with those as well.

Stretch marks?  No, not yet.

Sleep: I am always so tired, especially now that I have started working. Who starts working at 6 months pregnant exactly? This crazy woman right here.

Best moments the past two weeks: Had a mid-point checkup because I was having contraction like pains- and it was amazing to see my little baby on the screen again. She has just gotten to much bigger and i’m so proud to be her mommy. Another best moment? seeing the difference her movements and jabs make as she gets older. Everytime she does it I literally sit back, put my hands on my belly and appreciate every movement she makes. I just love it.

Miss Anything? Feeling refreshed. Nomatter how much sleep I get i’m just still always tired. Sleeping on my tummy will always be one of the biggest things I miss. And I also miss eating anything I want without a worry. People look at me like i’m crazy here when I ask if the mayo is home made or if the cheese is pasteurized.

Movement:  Yes. Some days she moves like crazy and some days shes resting a little more.

Food cravings:  Juice has been my number one. Burgers. Fries. Everything not healthy that i’m trying to stay away from. I’ll indulge myself a few times a week but always put a few healthy things in my diet that day.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Fish. I can’t stand the smell of fish. Or anything coming out of the ocean. Please get that away from me.

Labor Signs:  Wouldn’t like it anytime soon. She must stay inside just a little longer.

Symptoms:  Tired. All. The. Time. Some Round ligament pain. Some

Belly Button in or out?  In, thank god. But I am watching out for it, because my belly is expanding quite a bit and putting pressure on it.

Looking forward to:  Having her in my arms in 3 months. I just can’t wait. I keep dreaming of the day. Also, at that time my family will be coming as well, so it will be just the best time ever for me.

Next appointment:  October 24- Haven’t made the appointment yet, but that’s around when my doctor told me to schedule it. Also, second glucose test. Not looking forward to the pure torture of that test.

    Oh it is so good to hear from you! It made my morning! And your weight gain doesn’t sound bad. Since we are such little women, it is common to gain 35 pounds during pregnancy for a healthy baby. What type of job did you start? I can relate for the always being tired. That is why I don’t update much. Even now, my alarm was just supposed to go off, and I just want to sleep for several more hours!

      Yes, now you can totally feel how exhausting it is! 🙂 Maybe not so bad, but i’m worried about the third trimester because I heard its the time that you gain the most weight. I started a job at a children’s nonprofit hospice here in Kuwait. I’m an activities coordinator and events manager. I can relate to that alarm! I hate it more and more every single day. The weekend just passes by way too fast. We. Need. More. Sleep 🙂

        The job sounds amazing, but perhaps emotionally draining as well? Yes, I’m worried a bit all about all the weight gain, but also way too in love with this baby already to care too much 🙂

        By the way, I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Award. Check it out… http://teardropsfalling.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/a-diaper-bag-and-a-bit-of-sunshine/
